Algebra: Volume I: Fields and Galois Theory by Falko Lorenz

By Falko Lorenz

From Math experiences: "This is a captivating textbook, introducing the reader to the classical elements of algebra. The exposition is admirably transparent and lucidly written with merely minimum necessities from linear algebra. the recent thoughts are, at the least within the first a part of the ebook, outlined within the framework of the advance of rigorously chosen difficulties. hence, for example, the transformation of the classical geometrical difficulties on structures with ruler and compass of their algebraic environment within the first bankruptcy introduces the reader spontaneously to such primary algebraic notions as box extension, the measure of an extension, etc... The booklet ends with an appendix containing routines and notes at the prior components of the ebook. notwithstanding, short historic reviews and recommendations for additional analyzing also are scattered during the text."

Example text

Clearly D O is an equivalence relation on R. F1. In an integral domain R we have a D O b if and only if there is a unit " of R such that b D "a. The simple proof is left to the reader. In the ring ‫ ޚ‬we have a D O b if and only if a D ˙b. But in general an integral domain has more units than just 1 and 1: Examples. (a) If R is a integral domain, so is the polynomial ring RŒX , and RŒX  D R . (b) For the subring R D ‫ ޚ‬Œi  of ‫ ރ‬we have R D f˙1; ˙i g. (c) For a field K we of course have K D K r f0g.

Now let be a given nonzero prime of R. The corresponding -adic valuation w W K ! ‫ [ ޚ‬f1g in R (page 40) can be extended to a map w W KŒX  ! f / is the exponent of the highest that fits in all coefficients of f . f / for c 2 K; f 2 KŒX : The springboard for the proof of Gauss’s Theorem is provided by the next result: F5. Let R be a unique factorization domain and ¤ 0 a prime in R. h/: Proof. Clearly, for every f 2 KŒX  there exists c 2 R such that cf 2 RŒX . So taking (7) into account, we can assume without loss of generality that g; h 2 RŒX .

Proof. (a) The intersection of all subfields of K is a subfield of K. It is the smallest subfield of K, hence a prime field. (b) Let K be any field and K0 its prime field. Clearly, ‫ޚ‬K Â K0 . Now, in case A above, ‫ޚ‬K is itself already a subfield of K, so K0 D ‫ޚ‬K ' ‫= ޚ‬p ‫ ޚ‬. In case B we have K0 D Frac ‫ޚ‬K ' Frac ‫ ޚ‬D ‫ ޑ‬. ˜ Remarks. (a) It is customary to write just n instead of nK , and we will do so. But you should keep an eye open in each case for whether the n represents an integer or an element of K.
